You're a homeschooler,
because you want to give your kids
better than what the world offers them.

But it doesn't feel the way you thought it would.

The curriculum you picked is beautiful, but feels overwhelming.

And yet, you still have the feeling you’re not doing enough.

You spend hours grading and not enough of the cozy, carefree time you looked forward to when you started.

Promised field trips and playdates never happen, because you’re worried they’ll get further behind if you take time off.

Your kids are fighting with each other all the time and you don’t know what to do.

You spend more time lecturing them about how to respond appropriately to their mother than you do connecting with them.

And every time you turn around the toddler is on the top of the refrigerator.

You feel guilty whenever you see the stack of unfinished, overdue read-alouds.

You’re trying to balance the house and homeschooling, but nothing is actually getting done, at least not well. 

You send your husband angry and frustrated texts all day complaining about the kid’s attitudes, to the point where he’s ready to send them to school to give you a break.

When your mom calls and wants to know what you’ve been up to all day, you’re at a loss of what to tell her, because you’re afraid of what she’ll say.

You’ve tried to implement the advice that seasoned homeschoolers give you or that you read on a blog. It worked for a little while, sort of, but then somewhere along the line it stopped working
and now you feel like you’re back at square one.

Nothing's wrong with you.
You just need to learn how to enjoy the journey!

Hi, I'm Emily!
I help you put your life in Right Order

Wife of 17 years to Lucas and mom of 7 stellar Catholic kids who are obsessed with swim, theater, animals, and each other!

And we LOVE homeschooling!

I'm also a certified Life Coach who has devoted my life to helping Catholic families fall in love with God through their relationships and homeschooling lifestyle.

I believe we can win the world back for God's kingdom one family at a time.

And I truly believe it can all start with the Mama

After trying private school, public school, and Catholic school,
here's what we learned:

The grass is not always greener on someone else's playground.
We were being CALLED
to homeschool

I just needed to figure out what that meant for our own family.

Because every homeschool is as unique the family being called to do it.

So if you've been trying to replicate what works for someone else's homeschool or even trying to replicate school at home, it's likely because you're not trusting yourself to know what's best for your family.

And not being willing to trust yourself, or God, with your home and homeschooling, is why it's felt so hard.

And after all my trial and error, here's the secret I learned, that no one tells you:
There is no right way to homeschool.
Only the way you make right for your family.

The reason that the curricula, planners, advice from bloggers, more seasoned homeschoolers, and social media groups haven’t worked for you (for more than five minutes) is that they are geared only toward teaching you their strategy.

You’ve been trying to replicate what has worked for someone else.

But, you are a unique mama, with unique children, and unique circumstances.

Let homeschooling be simple.
I'm so much more than a Homeschool Consultant.
I am your Life Coach.
Which means that

When you learn how to think differently and gain confidence, then you stop looking to other people to tell you what to do for your family and instead you BECOME the expert.

When we work together I teach you the most important skills you need with simple tools,
so you can start enjoying the experience of your life
and start answering this call from God to homeschool your children more intentionally.

My simple, proven process
helps you learn how to 
trust yourself and
create the right way 
to homeschool your family,
regardless of your unique circumstances
or the season of life you’re currently in.
And it's easier than you think.

Being coached by Emily is like talking to an encouraging best friend who believes in you when you don't believe in yourself. Emily is full of empathy and understanding, but her questions are penetrating and you realize that her carefully nuanced inquiries are there to reveal your own wisdom and help you to establish roots to begin believing in yourself. She helps me to find clarity in my thoughts and feelings. The practical advice, mindset work, and spiritual guidance flow into all aspects of my life: prayer, marriage, mothering, homemaking, homeschooling, and friendship. She is full of tender love and encouragement, quick to light up with a smile and share her own vulnerability, thereby creating a space of intimacy and inspiration in her coaching calls. Basically, Emily is a Jedi Master and a guide of Gandalf caliber on this path to Heaven.
